King Kitt- The Paper Dick-tator
"For me being a feminist is not just about women's rights- it is about everyone's rights. The ciswhiteheteropatriarchy is bad for us all, even the cis white hetro patriarchs.
The "King Kitt" works are about toxic masculinity- which I feel creates a series of circumstances that can make men comically manly, dangerously macho and devastatingly vulnerable and the King Kitt character is all of these things. A scrotty, sexy, terminally confused, toxic male at your service... or at his own service... it's quite hard to tell."
Lady Kitt, 2018
